Cash for jewellery

Asked to find a way to inject some interest into an everyday interaction, Bath student Sophie Kemp came up with a novel method of making the giving and receiving of money more memorable

You’ve probably all given and received money as a gift at some time, but just stuffing a tenner inside a card doesn’t really convey much of the personal touch, more ‘I couldn’t be arsed to find out what you’d really like so, here, buy it yourself’. But what if that note was instead fashioned into a piece of jewellery?

 

Sophie Kemp, a graphic communication student at Bath School of Art and Design came up with just such an idea following a workshop on interaction design with Daljit Singh of Conran Singh. “I decided to take the interaction of the giving and receiving of money and change the cold cut nature of this process. I wanted to add some more value to this exchange so I used origami folds to create wearable rings from what initially started as dollar bills,” Kemp says. “I then proceeded to make these rings from other currencies.”
